The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.
Narrated by Lena Headey (who plays Princess Luna), the prologue sets the stage for the world of Eos, the Kingdom of Lucis and its ruler King Regis (played by Sean Bean). A battle outside the city walls of Insomnia introduces viewers to the elite unit known as the Kingsglaive, and their fearless soldier Nyx (played by Aaron Paul). The CG movie will be available digitally on August 30th.
